Not much to say other than after finally dragging myself out of bed at 5am it was satisfactory to have my second owl for our new home (Great Horned was my first).
Now I've had Saw-Whet, Great Horned, and Screech as yard birds at various houses... yet for some reason Barred Owl still escapes any yard list I've ever had...

Ben is a long time birder and is honestly much more knowledgeable than me about birds... as I once said, when it comes to birds, he is the brains, I'm the personality and insanity.

From there we traveled down to Brownsville and searched Sabal Palm but really didn't have much. A stop at the brownsville landfill provided our long searched for Raven and Aplomado Falcon.
We ended the bird-day by getting good looks at Cassin's Sparrow, Ferruginous Hawk, and Aplomado Falcon.
Then we drove up to Houston, which is where we are this fine morning. 60 degrees today... And it'll only be downhill from here :-( goodbye shorts weather... Hello long pants and soon hello sweatshirts and mittens.
Now its off to search for Brown-headed nuthatch and certain woodpecker that seems to have alluded me to this point...

We also had an excellent showing of 4 genuine Muscovey along the rio grande flying over at sunrise.
Dinner last night was potatoes and pulled pork sandwiches. Tonight is "mac n cheese" and hot dogs.
Yet nothing has compared to the pinguinos...
And for breakfast tomorrow horchata and oatmeal... Yaaay!!!
